Alison Ingenito – OptimumProp

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Multi-family residential property management needn’t be a heartless pursuit. So emphasizes Alison Ingenito, who backs up her claim with a slew of anecdotes, including one about keeping together a disabled veteran and his dog. That man may have taken some liberties on the housing front, Ingenito concedes. He was, after all, living in a no-pets […]

Shweta Patel – Pacific HealthWorks

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Shweta Patel’s workdays don’t require her to check patients’ blood pressure, inform them of test results, or consult them on treating a diagnosis. However, as general counsel for Pacific HealthWorks, which mostly manages hospital-based physician practices in Southern California, Hawaii and New Mexico, Patel constantly takes the organization’s pulse. Whether Patel is providing expertise in […]

Kati Brady – Radiology Partners

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Kati Brady isn’t selling herself short when she refers to herself and her colleagues in corporate labor and employment law as glorified human resources personnel. On the contrary, she’s emphasizing just how essential the human element is in advancing an enterprise. “One of the most important things for a labor and employment attorney to do […]

Honda South America – Fernanda Platero

Est. reading time: 4 mins

While empowering women is as much sound business practice as socially responsible, Fernanda Platero has an interesting take on why it’s even more important in the South American automotive industry. “Here in Brazil, when a family buys a car, usually it’s the mother who decides which car to buy,” she says. “When you think about […]

I was honored to be the subject of an article. I enjoy reading Vanguard articles and seeing how other attorneys got to their positions and see their jobs. It's also interesting to see how different law firms partner with the subjects of the articles.
– Henry Marquard, in-house counsel, Stanley Consultants Inc.
As promised in advance, my feature in Vanguard has increased my visibility within the profession and prompted more than a few people I have not communicated with recently to reconnect. One of the Italian law firms I have used in the past is now in the process of interviewing me for an article on their website and tweeting out the feature story. Activity and the number of people connecting with me on LinkedIn has soared, which is great. The Vanguard writers and editorial staff were great to work with—highly professional and made the effort to make the experience both fun and rewarding (they were also respectful of the time pressures and demands all lawyers face). I was very pleased with the experience and the final outcome. Needless to say, I have been very pleased. All in all working with Vanguard has been a very positive experience which generated good publicity for both Shawcor and myself. My sincere thanks.
– Tim Hutzul, General Counsel, ShawCor Ltd.
The piece highlighting my company, Bob Baker Enterprises, Inc., came out fabulous. Our company is in the new and used car sales and service industry. Everyone was great to work with and extremely professional. They produced a high-quality product and have provided expert assistance and guidance post-production of the article.
– Wade Poulson, General Counsel, Bob Baker Enterprises Inc.
It was a great honor to be featured in Vanguard Law. Working with every member of the team, from the initial interview with Erin Clark, through production with Victor Martins, writing the article with Taryn Plumb and creating the final content with Dave Gushee, was a true pleasure. Everyone was very professional, enthusiastic and supportive, and their creative approach and positive attitude clearly came through in the final product.
– Kevin C. Rakowski, Senior Vice President, Deputy General Counsel, Compliance with Radian Group Inc.
